United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 9

Stop here for a fantastic transcriptionist who makes YOU look good on paper! Whatever you've recorded - dissertation interviews, lectures, brainstorming sessions, conferences, meetings, workshops, video sales pitches and tutorials, voicemails, an upcoming presentation or your next eBook - I can get your audio into written format and ready to travel onwards toward its final destination. Your audio content is a reflection on your project and so is the transcription of it. Choose someone who works as hard as you do: - Dedicated, full-time transcriptionist with professional software and equipment - Native English speaker who fears no dialect of her mother tongue - Fantastic spelling, grammar and formatting skills - Friendly and accommodating, with sharp ears and fast hands - My transcriptions look great with or without the audio - I care about your privacy and will sign an NDA to that effect My goal is to deliver to you high-quality transcripts that inspire us both. You can trust me to treat your project with kid gloves while delivering 100% of the time on your expectations. Check my portfolio to see examples of how great your content is going to look. I am often open to negotiating flat fees for bigger projects or regular clients. Please know, however, that my rate is quite fair for the industry. Poor recordings, more than two speakers, additional editing or excessive formatting can cost a little or a lot more, depending on your needs. I can give you an accurate estimate if you send me your audio. I look forward to speaking with you!
